2 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
3 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
4 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
5 Test::Harness.

76.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
8 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
9 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
10 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
11 modules.
12 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
13 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.

156.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
16 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
17 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
18 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
19 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
20 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
21 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
22 (bleadperl@24185)
23 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)

256.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
26 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
27 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
28
296.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
30 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
31 passed the file they were to generate.
32 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
33 now documented.
34 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.

386.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
39 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
40 version is found.
41 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
42
436.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
44 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
45 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
46 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
47
486.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
49 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
50 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
51 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
52 previous alpha releases.
53
546.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
55 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
56 and better.
57 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
58 now possible.
59
606.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
61 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
62 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
63 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
64 XSUBPP alone.
65 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
66 make commands too long on VMS.
67 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
68 .exists files everywhere.
69 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
70 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
71 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
72 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
73 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
74 Module::Install
75
766.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
77 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
78 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
79 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
80 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
81 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
82
836.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
84 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
85 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
86 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
87 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
88 it yet. I'll do that next release.
89
906.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
91 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
92 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
93 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
94 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
95 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
96
976.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
98 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
99
1006.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
101 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
102 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
103 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
104 things like SVN's perl bindings.
105
1066.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
107 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
108 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
109 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
110 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
111 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
112 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
113 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
114 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
115 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
116 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
117
1186.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
119 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
120 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
121 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
122 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
123 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
124 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
125 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
126 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
127 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
128 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.

1306.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
131 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
132 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
133 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
134
1356.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
136 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
137 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
138 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
139 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
140 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
141 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
142
1436.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
144 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
145 installing some Tk modules.
146
1476.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
148 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
149 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
150
1516.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
152 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
153 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
154 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
155
1566.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
157 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
158 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
159 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
160 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
161 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
162 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
163 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
164 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
165 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 166 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 167 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
168 [Greg Matheson]
169 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
170 [Slaven Rezic]
171 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
172 [Slaven Rezic]
173 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
174 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
175 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
176 [Ilya Zakharevich]
177 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
178 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
179 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
180 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
181 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
182 Module::Build instead.
183 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
184 VMS. [rt 4675]
185 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
186 existing uses.
187 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
188 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
189 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
190 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
191 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
192 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
193 [rt 4687]
194 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
195 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
196 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
197 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
198 VMS. [rt 4676]
199 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
200 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 201
af7522e5 2026.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 203 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
204 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
205 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
206 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
207 for backwards compatibility.
208 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
209 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

2116.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
212 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
213 take a more conservative approach.
214 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
215 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
216 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
217 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
218 nmake [rt 4285 4301]
219

RGS
2206.19 Mon Nov 3 22:53:56 PST 2003
221 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
222 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
223 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
224 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
225 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
226 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
227
2286.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
229 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
230 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
231 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
232 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
233 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
234 Perls.
235 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
236 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
237 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
238 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
239 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
240 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
241 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
242 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
243 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
244 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
245 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
246 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
247 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
248 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
249 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
250 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
251 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
252 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
253 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
254 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
255 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
256 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
257 November and nobody noticed.
258 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
259 by the user.
260 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
261 * Documented UNINST=1
262

2636.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
264 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
265 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
266 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
267 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
268 (Orton Yves)
269 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
270 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
271 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
272 ndbgperl.exe.
273 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.
274
2c91f887
JH
2756.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
276 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
277 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
278 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
279 [Sreeji K Das]
280 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
281 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
282 bleadperl@20530)
283 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
284 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)
285
64964e6d

2866.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
287 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
288 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
289
2906.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
291 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
292 itself and the metafile documentation.
293 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
294 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
295 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
296 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
297 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
298 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

3006.13 Thu Jul 31 16:48:01 PDT 2003
301 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
302 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
303 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
304 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.
305
1b0fc073

3066.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
307 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
308 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
309 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
310 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
311 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
312 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
313 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
314 to INST_*.
315 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
316 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
317 really bizarre way.
318
3196.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
320 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
321 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
322 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
323 * Noting where to find make in the README
324 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
325 on Windows.
1b0fc073
JH
326
3276.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
328 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
329 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
330 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
331 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
332 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
333 This appears to be a rather old bug.
334 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
335 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
336 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
337 of prepending a .. onto it.
338 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
339 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
340 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
341 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
342 repeating the list all over the code.
343 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
344 with DESTDIR set.
345 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
346 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
347 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
348 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
349 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
350 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
351 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
352 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
353 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
354 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
355 when it didn't.
356
3576.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
358 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
359 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
360 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
361 to using multiple -e's.
362 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
363 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
364 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
365 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
366 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
367 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
368 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
369 $(ECHO).
370 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'
e3aa3ecb 371

3726.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
373 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
374 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
375 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
376 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
377 the basic.t test on Windows.

3796.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
380 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
381 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
382 alter your manifest.
383 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
384 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
385 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
386 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
387 around 6.06_01.
388 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
389 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
390 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
391 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
392 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
393 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
394 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

397 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
398 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
399 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
400 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
401 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
402 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
403 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
404 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
405 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
406 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
407 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
408 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
409 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
410 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
411 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
412 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
413 sometimes don't get installed.
414 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
415 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
416 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
417 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
418
4196.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
420 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
421 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
422 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
423 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
424 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
425 Fixed.
426 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
427 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
428 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
429 (Stas Bekman)
430 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
431 (Craig Berry)
432 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
433 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
434 miserably.
435 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
436
4376.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
438 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
439 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
440 Just on OS/2.
441
4426.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
443 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
444 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
445 to skip installing a file.
446 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
447 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
448 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
449 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
450 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
451 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
452 removed. No longer relevent.
453 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
454 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
455 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
456 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
457 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
458 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
459 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
460 properly before. (Craig Berry)
461 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
462 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
463 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
464 reading.
465 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
466 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
467 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
468 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
469 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
470
471# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
472# so much change between 6.05 and now.

MS
475 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
476 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
477 warning because of this.
478 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
479 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
480 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
481 Worked around.
482 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
483 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
484
4856.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
486 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
487 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
488 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
489 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
490 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
491 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
492 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
493 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
494 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
495 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
496 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
497 Missing since 5.6.1.
498 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
499 command line lengths.
500 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
501 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
502 eof() not honor tied handles.
503 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
504 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
505
5066.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
507 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
508 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
509 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
510 to think modules weren't installed.
511 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
512 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
513 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
514 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
515 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
516 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
517 warn_if_old_packlist().
518 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
519 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
520 in the first place.
521 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
522 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
523 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
524 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
525 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
526 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
527 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
528 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
529 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
530 expansion
531 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
532 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
533 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
534 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
535 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
536 MakeMaker.
537 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
538 - Added compile & POD test
539 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
540 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
541 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
542 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
543 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
544 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
545 [perl #21526]
546
5476.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
548 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
549 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
550 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
551 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
552 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
553 fixpath() work again.
554
5556.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
556 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
557 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
558 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
559 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
560 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
561 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
562 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
563 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
564 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
565 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
566 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
567 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
568 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
569 using that.
570 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
571 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
572 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
573 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
574 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
575 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
576 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
577 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
578 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
579 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
580 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
581 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
582 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
583 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
584 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
585 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
586 by default.
587 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
588 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
589 - Improved DISTNAME docs
590 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
591 * Documented dist()
592 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
593 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
594 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
595 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
596 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
597 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
598 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
599 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
600 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
601 of the clean target.
602 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
603 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
604 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
605 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
606 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
607 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
608 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
609 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
610 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
611 target.
612 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
613 they come first.
614 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
615 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
616 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
617 init_platform().
618 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()
619 Moved DEFINE_VERSION & XS_DEFINE_VERSION from constants() to
620 init_VERSION().
621 Eliminated MODULES. Unused and its the same as TO_INST_PM
622 Moved .INCLUDE from constants() to special_targets()
623
624 - MM_NW5 constants() & init_others() disolves
625 Moved LIBPTH, BASE_IMPORT, NLM_VERSION, MPKTOOL, TOOLPATH from
626 init_others() to init_platform()
627 Moved INCLUDE and PATH definitions from constants() to
628 init_platform()
629 Moved BOOT_SYMBOL, NLM_SHORT_NAME, PATH and INCLUDE from
630 constants() to init_platform()
631
632 - MM_Unix constants() goes on a diet
633 Moved all macro definitions to init_* methods.
634 Added MM_REVISION for completeness
635 Using wraplist() instead of manual joining
636 Moved .NO_CONFIG_REC, .SUFFIXES and .PHONY to special_targets()
637 Moved makemakerdflt: to makemakerdeflt_target()
638 Moved INST_{STATIC,DYNAMIC,BOOT} to init_INST()
639 Moved EXPORT_LIST, PERL_ARCHIVE & PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER to init_linker().
640 Moved PERL_MALLOC_DEF to init_platform()
641
642 - MM_VMS constants() goes on a diet
643 Moved DEFINE from constants() to init_main()
644 Moved OBJECT & LDFROM from constants() to init_others()
645 Moved MM_VMS_REVISION and PERL_VMS to init_platform
646 Added MM_VMS_VERSION
647 Moved DEFINE_VERSION, XS_DEFINE_VERSION and MAKEMAKER changes to
648 init_VERSION
649 Moved .SUFFIXES changes to special_targets() override.
650 Eliminated $self->{PM_TO_BLIB}. Its redundant with $self->{PM}.
651 constants() now consists only of fixpath() calls.
652
653 - MM_Win32 constants() goes away
654 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
655 Everything else was redundant.
656
657 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
658 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
659 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
660 into init_linker().
661 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
662 MM_VMS_VERSION.
663 - Eliminated duplicate code in constants() overrides
664 - Added all_target() for easier customization of what's run by default
665 - Eliminated duplicate top_targets() overrides
666 - Made tool_autosplit() method portable. Moved to MM_Any. Eliminated
667 overrides.
668 - Adding realclean_subdirs target and realclean_subdirs_target()
669 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
670 unportable part of the realclean target.
671 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
672 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
673 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
674 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
675 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
676 is explicitly set to empty.
677 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
678 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
679 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
680 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
681 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
682 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
683 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
684 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
685 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
686 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
687 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
688 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
689 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
690 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
691 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
692 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
693 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
694 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
695 dont_execute arguments.
696 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
697 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
698 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
699 commands.
700 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
701 be pointless.
702 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
703 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants
704 - ExtUtils::Install::pm_to_blib() working around open filehandle
705 bug in AutoSplit for systems with mandatory file locking.
706
7076.05 Tue Aug 27 16:09:51 PDT 2002
708 - Output format of the hint file verbose diagnostic is now in
709 a format native to the OS, so it broke a test on non-Unixen.
710
7116.04 Mon Aug 26 18:31:11 PDT 2002
712 - Little fix for pre-5.8 Cygwin test to get the shared library names
713 right.
714 * disttest on Win9X broken because of forgotten tabs
715 * WriteMakefile argument verification should now be accurate
716 - Documented the LD flag.
717 * Documented prompt()
718 * vendor install was not adding to packlist or updating perllocal.
719 - Supporting $Config{vendorarchexp} and $Config{vendorlibexp}.
720 - Fixed conflict on VMS between logical names and directories
721 (bleadperl 17488)
722 - Fixed space-vs-tab bug on Netware (bleadperl 17579)
723 - Mysterious NetWare fix from Ananth (bleadperl 17376)
724 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
725 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
726 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
727 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
728 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
729 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
730 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
731 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ
732 - Quieted some warnings on MacOS (bleadperl 17669)

1014 - ExtUtils::MM_Any->test_via_harness() now using -MExtUtils::testlib
1015 instead of -I's. This keeps the command line shorter on VMS, but
1016 it means TEST_LIB doesn't work anymore. May prove problematic.
1017 - PERLRUN now uses FULLPERL instead of PERL. This avoids
1018 accidental use of miniperl. May cause problems in the core.

1080 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
1081 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
1082 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
1083 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
1084 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
1085 backporting
1086 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
1087 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
1088 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1089 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1090 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1091 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1092 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1093 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1094 explicitly required MM_Unix.
1095 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
1096 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1097 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1098 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
1099 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
1100 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
1101 to EU::MM.
